Charming UK Warehouse Wedding: Laura + Karl

UK wedding

Even when friends + family seemed unsure about some of their ideas, Laura + Karl stuck to their guns, since they always knew they wanted a wedding that was fun, personal, and one-of-a-kind! When they found Camp and Furnace in Liverpool, England, it seemed meant to be, as it fit perfectly with the carefree vision they had for their day.

From Laura, We chose the Camp – a huge warehouse space – for its floor-to-ceiling printed scene of a forest, vintage caravans, festoon lighting, large olive trees, ping pong tables and huge projection screen. We knew that with just a few bits of our own, we’d have the perfect place. We made or collected everything ourselves with the help of family and friends. Our parents helped with everything – tassel making, table runners, invitations, order of service, jar and bottle collecting. My best friend and maid of honour is a make-up artist, her sister-in-law-to-be did all our flowers (2 days before she gave birth!), and my boss has another business which is a mobile bar – he very kindly brought the old Citroen H van and served the first drink for everyone!

Sounds like a wedding I would have loved to have been guest at! :) Big thanks to Babb Photo for the super gorgeous images + congrats to Laura + Karl!

Such a perfect ceremony exit!

Seeing each other at either end of the aisle and the ceremony itself. We knew it would be good because our priest could be/should be a comedian. There were more tears of laughter than joy! Also, towards the end of the night, when a lot of people had left and only the die-hards were there on the dance floor - with the DJ dancing behind his decks to "Jump in the Line" by Harry Belafonte, which is now our unofficial wedding song since we never had a first dance.

If you’re getting married in a church but don’t go regularly, then go more often and get to know your priest - it makes it so much more personal. Although you can’t help but be consumed by your wedding on the run up, try not to give yourself too much to do, or spend unnecessary money. Stick to your initial plan, and don’t add things in just because you’ve been overloaded with ideas. I believe less is more. The best bit of advice from a friend was make sure you get chance to dance, so that’s exactly what we did. And if you don’t want a first dance because you know you’ll hate it, then don’t put yourself through it!

Get the Look: Geometric Love

We just love geometrics! And inspired by this Geometric Shoot we shared a few weeks back, we came up with some fun finds to bring geometrics into your wedding day! With pops of bright colors, this palette + trend is sure to bring a smile on all your guests faces. Hanging geometric cubes would be a fun backdrop or hanging from the ceiling in your reception space. A lovely geometric box for the rings is perfect for your ring bearer to carry – and then put on your dresser as a special reminder to your wedding day. :) And the bright blue shoes? A perfect something blue for your day… :)

Boho Glam Wedding Inspiration

bohemian glam inspiration

Boho Glam, with a bit of Persian influence, was the inspiration behind today’s lovely styled shoot, captured by Anthem Photography. Mona from Birds & Honey, the stylist behind the design, wanted to pay tribute to her heritage and incorporate some of the bold + vibrant hues that are prominent in Persian culture. Hoping to find a backdrop similar to the gorgeous, green scenery of Iran, the team ventured off to picturesque Portland, Oregon to create a setting brimming with beautiful details + a carefree boho vibe…

If you love it as much as I do, here are some of the gems Anna incorporated: coral charm peonies, pink peonies, eves pioage garden rose, coral sweet peas, jasmine, rasberry scabiosa, coral ranunculus, allium, mock orange, + wigelia. So pretty!
